The One That Didn't Make It
I wasn't planning on posting anything today, but I just had to share this project. It was going to be for the Holiday Mini Blog Hop, but I thunka sumpin' more better, so I'm showing you this today. It's a travel tic-tac-toe game! I inked just the center grid of the new Bingo Card stamp (120851, available 9/1) and stamped it on some Candy Cane Christmas DSP (120809, also available 9/1), then adhered it to a piece of Magnet Sheet (119816, pg. 205 of the IB&C). Stamped some Jolly Bingo Bits (121187, 9/1) and adhered them on the magnet sheet, as well.
The playing board sticks to the back of the tin for ease of playing, and then stores inside with the playing pieces to keep them from getting lost. Yes, the magnets hold them inside, too, but you know how things can get lost when traveling!
Those are just a couple of the Jolly Bingo Bits you'll be seeing on my Holiday Mini Blog Hop post this Friday! Be sure to check back! Also, Wednesday is my second blogiversary, and I'll be putting some blog candy up for grabs. That should entice you all to come back, right???
Edited to add: I've had several people contact me for the source of the tins. They are available from Specialty Bottle in Seattle, WA.

Great projects. I really enjoyed looking at your blog. Where did you get the tins from?ReplyDelete
Please tell me where you get your little boxes. I think your projects are wonderful and I would like to make the little candy box and this travel bingo box for my nieces and nephews for Christmas gifts.ReplyDelete
